The trip was a blast. We had a great time. Tried a few things at Tahuya that we had not before. The goal with our outings to give the missus more time wheeling off road, and give the kid a little experience in her TJ. So far we are doing fine with that. Obivious in the videos and pics posted. Thanks to those folk for doing that.
The rest of the story:
The Youtube video shows pretty much what I did. From there, keen minds went to work.
Ron pulled out the hy-lift, Thane puulled out a strand of cable and clamps, I pulled out the come-along and the ratchet straps. In a about 45 minutes, the end result.
That patch held up through the eastern part on the northern loop, and then back down to Belfair Strabucks. We sat around and had coffee, as well as breakfast sandwiches that the starbucks staff said they were going to trash.
Mr. Fish and his better half hung out with us for about an hour, then they needed to head out. Wrecker sahowed up about 6:45pm, he was impressed that I could drive it up on the flat bead with a broken tie rod. We got home around 8pm. All that said, We had a blast. I owe folks some hardwear, I have not torn it down yet. I am working with Sean at NR to discuss Currie warranty. He is saying Currie wants me to call them. Ought to be an interesting call.
